Color Me Happy!

This stamp set has been discontinued but these cardstock colors are still in the new catalog! I thought it was a fun combination so wanted to go ahead and share the idea. It's cherry, grapefruit, bermuda, orange and papaya. Orange twinkle stickers and blush baker's cording finish off the look. Isn't it fun?

And, the top border is three strips of cardstock cut with the large scalloped border die and layered! So easy and yet the look is so good! The scalloped border die is now available to be purchased separately so if you just want the large scallops, you can get just that one die! LOVE IT!!

If you haven't tried A Muse Studio cardstock, I want to tell you that you're missing out. Not only is it a smooth 80 lb cardstock which is printed with soy-based inks, the cardstock has color or pattern on one side and is sugar or vanilla (white or cream) on the other. It's great for card-making because you don't have to layer another piece inside to write your note. And, it's also environmentally friendly. The cardstock is an FSC-certified paper which means it comes from a responsibly managed forest. One pack of patterned and single-color cardstock contains enough paper to make 40 A2 card bases. That's pretty awesome!

The sugar and vanilla cardstock packs are the same color on both sides and the quality is great for general stamping and copic coloring. Do you know that you get 40 sheets (or 80 A2 card bases) of those two colors for only $7.50 + tax & shipping? That's a great value!

To pick up some cardstock and twinkle stickers and cording and more, visit my webstore.

Have a wonderfully creative day!!

Friendship and Hibiscus *new color!*

Hibiscus splash is flicked across the top layer and then edged in hibiscus ink. A sentiment from Big Words is stamped in the middle of a hibiscus circle, layered on an onyx scalloped circle and an onyx petite polka dot bow is added. Note on the bow, I cut off the tails and re-glued them on the opposite sides so that the pattern would show.

Hibiscus might very well be my new favorite color. I adore this purply pink loveliness!
Here's the inside  - clean and simple. :)

Beautiful Day Notecard

Here's another one of our new stamp sets - Beautiful Birthdays. Love it!! It's so pretty and soft and wonderful. I might be doing a variation on this card for my July class or I might go a totally different way. will have to think about it some more. But, this set has many, many possibilities. Did you see the sponged masked border sympathy cards that I posted recently? This stamp set was used with that too.

All of these stamps and sentiments and wonderful papers are available in my webstore:

You've got Style, baby!

This is one of my July class cards. I love the new Bathing Beauties stamp set and this color palette was so appealing to play with - onyx, mermaid, bermuda, grass and vanilla. So pretty! Don't you agree? And, again, that font rocks!!

Have a wonderfully creative day!!
